Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa.

Upon meeting Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa, Wendy and Vivian were fangirling because they had read Daughters of the Stone several years prior and loved it. Dahlma had just obtained the rights back from St. Martin's Press (SMP) and wanted to independently publish a 10th Anniversary edition of her first novel. Vivian offered her website services and to help Dahlma create a social media presence since she already had an existing database of followers eagerly awaiting her second novel. 

 

It has been an incredible journey coaching Dahlma as she discovered Instagram and Twitter and began thinking strategically about the release of her 10th Anniversary edition. The word that comes to mind is serendipitous. Cristina and Vivian met while working at SMP; and found themselves some 15 years later,  taking on an SMP out-of-print title (Daughters of the Stone) and re-releasing it as a trade paperback edition via IngramSpark's Print-on-Demand. The services the Artea Creative collective provided Dahlma are tangible and measurable, however, the friendship that has evolved is truly priceless.
